group forming with senator joe manchin who is a democrat from west virginia and jon huntsman who was a presidential candidate a moderate who is trying to form this group to form bipartisanship, and is that possible anymore? we want to look at gun debate through the prism of bipartisanship and is that at all possible? >> do you believe they will come to some type of agreement here, because certainly a lot of issues on the table? >> yes. i think that there are a lot of issues on the table, so, i think that there are some things that the white house is prepared to do in terms of making the background checks more effective and laws in place to fund more of the money for some of the background check, and tighten up the sort of mental health background check, and try to help states comply a little bit more, but in terms of the big things, that is, what about the magazine clips that can fire so many bullets at the, you know, one right after the other in rampant fire, and what about the assault weapons ban? i don't know. we will see a little bit more coming up, because we do expect in th

not too long ago. the question is will they go single digit? on abc this week senator joe manchin had some things to say about getting things done in both chambers. listen to this, and i'll get your reaction. >> okay. >> i've yet to have a bipartisan meeting that's been organized where republicans and democrats in the senate sit down and work through their problems. think about just in the senate we don't have that type of dialogue going on from democrats and republicans. we don't even know our colleagues over in the house. >> don't even know our colleagues over in the house. you know, the whole fiscal cliff negotiations, we saw that. speaking all throughout the lead up to that deal coming down. members of the house didn't know what was happening over in the senate, and even as the senator was saying there, senators not knowing what the leadership in the senate were doing. >> well, so to go to manu's point, too, when we're going from crisis to crisis it's important to remember that congress has created these crises, not something sprung upon them, their inability to negotiate long-term dea

's bring in our political panel angela mcglowan, and a former chief of staff to joe manchin. it boggles the mind, the president with a jobs council the last year january, 2012. unemployment tad, angela and chris, 8.5% and now fallen to 7.8%, but while it's a good thing it's falling, there are till 21 million unemployed so unemployment has not fallen far enough. the light bulb has to go off. what progress is the job council making when creating more jobs? >> it's not made much progress and are we surprised that the president has not met with his jobs council in one year? this administration has been about political gesture, political manipulation, blame games, but what has really been done? kelly, remember in 2009 he appointed like 32 czar. we had an economic czar, a stimulus accountability czar, an interview czar. it's been about political gestures, but not actually solutions, but my question is, where is the public outrage? >> the public outrage, the public doesn't really understand what's going on with the jobs council, chris, weigh in on that for me. >> let's put some stuff into cont
new york times" today, democrat joe manchin of west virginia has faced doubts within his constituency who feel the second amendment is in jeopardy. "the times" describes the senator's attempts to reassure his constituents about the political climate in washington. he said i see no movement, no talk, no bills, no nothing. they remained skeptical. we give up our rights one piece at a time. a banker named charlie houck. he actually had a meeting and said how many of you are concerned you're going to lose your second amendment rights? all the hands went up. that shows how difficult it's going to be, even at this table, it seems to clear what needs to be done. that's not the way everybody feels. >> i'm disappointed mr. scarborough is not at this table because we had a heated one-on-one about first and second amendment about video games, comparing it to slippery slope on the second amendment. i've done a lot of research since then. i want to go back at him on that. this is a black-and-white issue again. to draw the line and say that in some way, shape or form we are going back to the founde
's recommendation and feinstein's recommendations. max baucus, joe manchin and ten others are raided at least "b" plus, if not "a." a lot of these people are "a"s. how do they hand that vote? >> dana: i don't think it will necessarily come to a vote. i do admire the administration for putting biden out there today. a week after president obama signed the executive orders. i thought that maybe that would bebe that. but then when feinstein did her bill today, i guess it's possible that her personal feelings have evolveed over time, as it happened with other politicians. also i think one person's assault weapon is another person's self-defense weapon. what she was talking about in that clip was the ability to defend herself. this is possible that public opinion, though, looks at something that joe biden says where he says, as you point out, don't let your kids play with guns. don't let crazy people have guns. yes, we all agree on that. then is there anything, though, they said today, that would make this ban a magic wand? just because you ban it, as it showed from 1994 to 2004 when the ban was in p

's dead set against this but you also have several oil state democrats, mary landrieu comes to mind. joe manchin of west virginia, who would be dead set against any kind of cap and trade. any kind of carbon tax. anything that they think would cost them jobs and therefore cost the election. but the counter argument to that, the evidence is impossible to ignore. if we're talking about snow, we're talking about snowpocalypse. here in d.c. we're talking about superstorm sandy, the confluence of three different weather fronts that caused such destruction. bill mckibben was right. it becomes an economic issue at its fundamental core. i think the public is starting to see that and i think they're ahead of the politicians on this one. >> john: fighting climate change is good capitalism. tina you don't pew editor in chief of the contributor. joe williamss, thank you both for joining me this evening. >> thank you. >> john: now that ultra conservatives have failed, we'll see their new strategy to fail again in the exact same wayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayayay d get. >> i'm an
in new york next week and john huntsman and west virginia democratic snow joe manchin. it is one thing for groups like that to talk together, robert but another thing to be in the beltway and working ninthings o. the president will not get into a discussion about the debt ceiling and it has to be taken care of and we have to pay our bills. is there anything that suggests to you consensus on any kind? >> no, it does not. you have speaker boehner saying i'm not going to negotiate one or one. what you just said is unfortunate, he doesn't want to have a discussion about the debt ceiling. this is a two-prong process, constitutionally the president is right, congress racked up these bills if you will, but the president signed them into law, both republican and democrat. both people have gone through this dance, if you will and it's a horrible dance. so what these leaders need to do is figure it out. after all, that's what we paid them to do and just as importantly, that's what they've been elected to do, figure this out. >> good to see you, thank you. >>> also making news this morning, the o
of staff for west virginia senator joe manchin and joe watkins was an aid with president george h.w. bush. i want to start with you becausas we have seen, former congresswoman gabby giffords and her husband mark kelly this week launching a super pac americans for possible solutions or responsible solutions, excuse me, other interest groups, mayors against illegal guns are led and financed by new york mayor michael bloomberg. they're raising a lot of money. one thing i want to point out is that gabby giffords' new group, the americans for responsible solutions has gotten a $1 million donation from a couple in texas and trial lawyers there who were politically active. do you think this type of money and this type of support can beat the nra at its own game? >> i don't think it's a matter of plague partisan politics or anti-nra. i think every american wants to make sure that we have schools that are safe and that our kids are protected no matter what and any cause, and i don't think it's a matter of liberal, moderate or conservative in this matter because it's about human beings and about am
this debate? >> i think joe manchin's point in that commercial wasn't the rifle. it was shooting obama's energy policy with the rifle. i'll let joe speak for himself. >> you look at connecticut where this awful, sickening crime occurred. everything that guy did was illegal already. if -- it's just a reminder if you make having guns fwens the law, the only people that will have guns are criminals. that's the way -- that's the result in connecticut. >> the supreme court has already ruled in the heller case that there can be exceptions, that the d.c. gun law was unconstitutional, but other assault weapon bans might not be unconstitutional. the constitution does not preclude other restrictions on guns, and background checks. and other measures that are considered and have widespread support. do you think that republicans should take a closer look at some of the other options in the aftermath of newtown? >> again, i think the most productive thing being talked about here is how do we prevent mentally ill deranged people from getting firearms or any other dangerous weapons. that is a useful
territory if they can thread the needle for people like joe manchin. >> the numbers are overwhelming. you have joe manchin who's now coming together, has a bipartisan bill out we'll be talking about. he's together with senator kirk out of illinois, a republican, talking about universal background checks. again, this is something that stands anywhere from 85% to 92% approval rating. the nra is still against it. we'll see if any republicans are still against it, too. steve, i'm going to -- since mika's not here -- >> oh, god. >> my breakfast has just arrived. and i'm going to prepare, and i'm going to make it even harder for a woman to carry me from combat. and we'll be right back. when we come back, we're going to be talking to mary matalin. i'm very excited about that. she likes munchkins as well. "fortune's" leigh gallagher, "the washington post's" eugene robinson and actor victor garber. up next, mike allen with the top stories in the "politico playbook." first here's bill karins with a check on the weekend forecast. bill, i hope the forecast is as sweet as this munchkin going down. >>
go ahead and bother. you mean to tell me we can't even go back to where we were? senator joe manchin of west virginia went on cnn to talk about bipartisanship yesterday. he ended up taking a totally partisan stance on an assault weapons ban. >> just get a yes or no possibly. an assault weapons stand alone ban. >> a assault weapons ban, on just guns alone will not in the political reality that we have today will not go anywhere. it has to be comprehensive, candy. >> let's have an up or down vote on that. i'm not so sure than. senator manchin is shutting down the debate before it's even started. it looks like congress might not have the courage to act on anything. so today the president talked about his alternatives. >> i'm confident that there are some steps we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president. >> and here is the level headed and bipartisan response. representative steve stockman is threatening to impeach the president of the united states if there is any new gun control laws out there. his official website says "come and take it,"
political and are not going to keep our children safer. >> robert costa, we heard from senator joe manchin over the weekend and others. they want a broad base. they said you're not going to get a semiautomatic ban unless you have bettered attention to mental illness and obama today said that the gun lobby people were ginning up fear among americans who otherwise want reform. where is this thing going to play out? >> larry, i just walked over here in the u.s. capitol. the house is now back in session. i spoke with some lawmakers. especially among republican legislator, there's not a clamor to move towards an assault weapon ban, but there's a real discussion about background checks, about limiting the amount of bullets that could be in a magazine. and these are only preliminary discussions. so what president obama did today by talking about an executive order, he is trying to urge this process along, but it's a long way away from being a legislative reality. >> don clark, i appreciate your thoughts on the ban. i'm surprised that the police organizations which i believe would much prefer a ba
and joe manchin, and asked them what they think about how we got here and how we go forward. >> we have forgotten how to do the art of the deal. it's been so long since this government has put together any kind of deal between parties. heaven forbid the next generation come up thinking this is the normal way forward. this is not the normal way forward. this represents a broken system. >> if we quit thinking about the next election and start thinking about the next generation, we're going to make it through our lives just fine. it's what we're living behind. and they're going to have to come together sooner or later. >> there you heard it. it's the short term thinking creating potentially huge long-term costs for the american economy. >> the down grading of the u.s. economy was a huge problem. of course, it hasn't yet resulted in higher interest rates. a lot of people might say, look, who cares? let's be complacent. let's not worry about another downgrade. who cares? do people get it, in washington, that's it's important? >> it almost seems to be an afterthought in all of the chest thump
agreement there joe manchin, as you know, democratic senator from west virginia, conservative, bucked his party, also very strong, gets an a from the nra, said i don't think an assault weapons ban can pass unless it's part of a larger package. so he doesn't think as a stand-alone, congress will pass an assault weapons ban. now, david keane said right now, an assault weapons ban could not pass. the nra does have a lot of supporters. keane made the point when the president gets on the bully pull pits, he can be effective. people took it right here, right now, here is what i see. the white house said we are going to go out and really pitch this, so we will -- we will fee they do right now, you see the same schisms of what you have there in terms of why an assault weapons ban according to, certainly the nra, won't work. >> let me just ask you, because the president pretty busy also doing cabinet building. the latest nominee is jack lew and i am wondering how is that one really being received? >> well, depends on -- i think we have to take sort of all -- the 50,000-foot view from these -- for

, he climbed the 45 steps of the capitol, with vice president biden and west virginia senator joe manchin on hand for support. secretary of state hillary clinton will return to work at the state department sometime next week. clinton was discharged yesterday from a new york hospital, where she had been treated for a blood clot in her head. a state department spokeswoman said clinton is now resting at her home in new york, but wants to get back to washington. >> some of the senior staff who spoke to her half an hour ago said that she's sounding terrific, upbeat, raring to go. she's looking forward to getting back to the office. she is very much planning to do so next week and we'll have further precise details about that as she continues to make progress. >> sreenivasan: clinton is stepping down soon. senator john kerry has been nominated to be the next secretary of state. classes resumed today for the connecticut children whose school was the scene of a december massacre. 20 children and six adults were killed at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, nearly three weeks ago. sce

of the assault weapons ban, joe manchin saying he didn't think an assault weapons ban standing on its own could get through congress. it had to be part of broader reform. are you optimistic about an assault weapons ban? >> you know, i actually have heard from moderate gun owning members of congress, mike thompson was there today talking about these issues, and he is open to an assault weapons ban. he is, in fact, supporting an assault weapons ban. i think the issue here is really putting members on the spot. you know, let's not say what can and can't pass. let's put things on the table and make people take a vote. if they really want to say that we can't do anything to solve these problems and we have another tragedy, then it will be on them that they act. >> we will be following it. when we come back, we will have more after the break. it's healthier, and the only one clinically proven. with aloe, vitamins, and no ammonia. my hair looks healthier than before i colored. i switched. you can too, to natural instincts. ♪ some brokerage firms are. but way too many aren't. some of the ones that pu

that they face on that front given the fact that joe manchin and others is an "a" rated by the nra, democrat from west virginia. couple weeks ago immediately after newtown, he was quite open. he said everything should be on the table and in some of the things that we've heard him say over the last 24 to 48 hours where he said the idea of an assault weapons ban alone is just not going to stand. it needs to be something comprehensive. appears clear that there is a lot of challenge to that ban being reinstated in congress. >> peter, we're going the ask you to stand by. i'm going to go to the reverend al sharpton, el shultz here in studio with me. gentlemen, i want to show everybody the front page of politico, double trouble, house gop eyes default, and shutdown. ed, as we just heard peter talking about there, the language being used by republicans in washington, d.c. right now. it will be interesting to hear how the president comes out. is this his first volley at getting to sell this to the american people? >> well, i think it's important that the president come out and set the tone of what the par
a-rated democrats from the nra, joe manchin, obviously, bob casey of pennsylvania, both may be able to add to that pressure specifically as it speaks to the issue of gun control. >> david, i want to talk to you about women and not in a brent musberger sort of way but a real way. you write about the durt of women in the cabinet and susan rice and fell apart and that's not been replaced by anybody and looking at three women for 15 cabinet posts. not the diversity we would expect from obama that we would hope for from obama and it seems or a little late in the game to make up for that. so is he just going to be behind the eight ball now? >> well, you know, it is interesting because women's issues as you know is a big issue in the campaign. the president made it an issue and as did the republicans and the president trying to drive a wedge and won 55% of the women's vote and i think he made the point, you know, he wanted women's health issues and equality in pay and same time with the departure of hillary clinton, you are looking at a national security cabinet all men and there is concer
